DRILL BIT STICKS are primarily recommended for use to increase the drilling efficiency and life of the drill bits. The slick coating and foaming action increases the efficiency of the drilling process by preventing the clays from sticking and balling up on the drill bit while drilling operations are going on. This same slick coating and foaming action will also help prevent the jets on the drill bit from plugging, therefore optimizing mud and cutting returns to the surface and improving drill bit penetration into the ground formations.
DRILL BIT STICKS can also be used to increase the swabbing efficiency and life of the swab cups. The slick coating and foaming action increases efficiency of the swab and extends the life of swab cups. The perforations are often cleaned as a result of the detergent and swabbing action.
DRILL BIT STICKS can be used to remove fluid from gas-condensate wells and flowing oil wells, however Select Industries has a broad range of sticks specifically designed for this procedure. For gas-condensate wells with more than 75% condensate, it is recommended to use Select Industries OIL FOAM STICKS™.
